Cricketing Cliche 22

Needless run-out.

Many newspapers tomorrow will describe Dinesh Karthik's dismissal as a "needless run-out". Now, what kind of run-out is it, I wonder, that is not needless.

Pakistan (cliche coming up) have their tails up, and Shahid Afridi must be looking forward to come out and tonk them around. I am certain he is going to fancy having a go at Lakshmipathy Balaji; I am equally certain that Balaji is looking forward to that battle. But, at the moment, he is perhaps looking forward to scoring some runs. First Afridi to Balaji; and later, Balaji to Afridi. I can't wait.
